YMMV: Night Shift
  • Nausea Fuel: In "Gray Matter", we have the charming tale of a man who is transformed into a fungoid blob caused by a bit of gray slimy guck-infesting one of his nightly cans of beer. Later, we hear his son's story of seeing what's become of his father eating the bloated, putrefying, maggot-ridden corpse of a cat.
    • In "The Lawnmower Man", the title character's self-driving machine runs over a mole (an analogue of an earlier scene where the same thing happens to a cat, albeit with a different mower). The man, following close behind, eats the body of the mole just as he has been eating the expelled grass clippings.
    • "The Mangler" — imagining a person crushed and folded by an industrial laundry's steam ironer (and having their remains taken out in a basket) is enough to make someone ill.
  • Squick: Several of the stories, but especially "The Lawnmower Man".
  • Tear Jerker: "The Last Rung on the Ladder", and "The Woman in the Room".
